George Zimmerman Threatens to "Beat TO JAY-Z" On Trayvon Martin Doc
There's talk about people who are "fed to a crocodile."
JAY-Z and The Weinstein Company announced a six-part docuseries Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story in the month of March. Based on attorney Lisa Bloom's book Suspicion Nation: The Inside Story of the Trayvon Martin Injustice and why we continue to Repeat, chronicles of Trayvon Martin's short life, his shooting death at the hands of George Zimmerman, and Zimmerman's subsequent acquittal.
When Zimmerman learned the production team working on the docuseries tried to interview his family, he threatened to "beat JAY-Z," and of the power of any person who "fucks" with their parents to "a crocodile," according to The Explosion.
It all started two weeks ago, when the team led by executive producer Michael Gasparro — made unannounced visits to Zimmerman at the home of the parents as well as that of his uncle, where Zimmerman says he "harassed". He did not confirm if they were in the chamber to participate in the project.
"Anyone who fucks with my parents fed to a crocodile," he said.
Zimmerman, who shot 17 years ago, Martin five years ago, according to the reports, he said, "I know how to handle people that fuck with me, I have since February 2012," in allusion to the date of Martin's death (February 26, 2012).
Zimmerman is concerned that producers allegedly paid to his ex-wife to appear in the documentary, but they refuse to pay any of your other family members.
Taking into account the recent Harvey Weinstein sex scandal and Bloom's contentious working relationship with Hollywood titan (she previously represented him and admitted that the decision was a "colossal mistake" in an interview with Vanity Fair magazine), it is not clear if the project will ever see the light of day.
